Falling In Love with the Voice Of Elizabeth Mitchell

I do not get to listen to music that much these days..
If we are in the car, it is either Marcs music or Broxton talking, or Broxtons music or a show/movie...
Well, I have to tell you something... I wanted to review the CD, Elizabeth Mitchell & you are my flower:  Blue Clouds,  for Broxton.. but now it is for me too!
As soon as I put the CD in, the song, "Hop Up, My Ladies" immediately had me hooked! 
It says that this is a CD that is traditional folk and classic rock... for kids...
But I am for real enjoying it!!!
The Hop Up song has been going on a loop in my head... Not a bad way either...
Each song has you falling more in love with the voice of Elizabeth Mitchell and the CD has been on replay over and over again....
Put it this way, we do not listen to CD's in the house that often... but we have been since blue clouds arrived!

I had no clue that some of these songs were covers (I am not a big classic rock listener)  but after learning this, I wonder what Marc would think, since he loves classic rock...

Here is a little more about the CD:

The recordings on Blue Clouds are illuminated by elegant and simple arrangements, with acoustic guitars, harmoniums, banjos, pianos, fiddles, glockenspiels, and gentle drums and bass creating a soulful atmosphere for Mitchell’s clear and loving voice. The songs range from new compositions (“Rollin’ Baby,” “Arm in Arm”) to traditional tunes (“Hop Up, My Ladies,” “Froggie Went a-Courtin’”), to several unexpected covers. Mitchell looks to her childhood memories of 1970s radio on road trips in the family station wagon, and the resulting versions of “Kooks” by David Bowie, “May This Be Love” by Jimi Hendrix, “Blue Sky” by The Allman Brothers Band, “Everyone” by Van Morrison, and “I Wish You Well” by Bill Withers display Mitchell’s care in presenting popular material in a family music context.

Do you have any songs/artists that you can listen to over and over again?
